By ripping blu ray movies to 1080p HD video clips and backup blu ray movies to Hard drive or Media Server, Blu-ray movies can be played freely over Player Software, HD media players and Video DVD players as well, and are no longer restricted to play in applicable Blu-ray player only. Many movie lovers find it takes long time to rip a Blu-ray Disc to PC, especially when they choose 1080p MKV/MP4/AVI/WMV as export format. If you have a PC/laptop with Intel CORE i5/i7 processor with 6GB of RAM or above and run an effective Blu-ray ripping/converting tool exclusively, the Blu-ray ripping process could takes around an hour. Generally speaking, ripping blu ray disc process can cost 2-8 hours when working on a slower/regular PC. The higher quality you get, the longer it takes.
I recommend you Pavtube Copy Blu ray Movies to Hard drive. By processing video conversions on NVIDIA's GPU instead of your computer's CPU, ripping blu ray disc time can greatly shorted and more CPU resources can be spared for other applications, making your computer run much smoother. For instance, recently released Pavtube Copy Blu ray Movies to Hard drive takes 90min only to rip Blu-ray Avatar to 1080p H.264 MP4 file (output size- 10GB), comparing with 270min when ripping with its previous version. The ripping speed can be faster when/if the GeForce GTS 240 is replaced with a more powerful CUDA enabled Graphics card. This way works only when there is anNVIDIA's CUDA enabled Graphics card and copy blu ray movies into H.264 encoded formats (H.264 MKV, MP4, MOV, etc).
When ripping Blu-ray Disc to Hard drive or Media Server with Pavtube Copy Blu ray Movies to Hard drive, you may find that there are too many video and audio formats to choose from, although the customized formats are divided into groups (iPod, iPhone, Android, Apple TV, Xbox, PS3, HD Video etc). The most often asked question is, how do I copy Blu ray movies to hard drive with no loss of quality to either video or audio? Well, in that case you could try 'Directly Copy' option, since it is free of endecoding process, during which quality loss is unavoidable.
1. Import Blu-ray Disc to the Blu-ray Disc ripping software.
Insert your Blu-Ray disc to BD drive (BD drive is an essential for ripping Blu-ray disc). Click the BD icon to load Blu-ray Disc. Click the 'Title Mode' button to switch to 'File Mode'. When it changes to 'File Mode', you will find M2TS streams are displayed in sequence. You can preview them too.
2. Set export method for copying M2TS from Blu-ray Disc.
Click the 'Format' bar, select 'Copy>>Directly Copy'. Click on the 'Convert' button and Blu-ray Disc Ripper will extract the Blu-Ray files and copy them to where you specified. After ripping completed, you may click on 'Open' button to find the unprotected M2TS file.
Tip: Once Directly Copy is selected, the 'Settings' button is disabled and you can not change the video and audio parameters like codec, bit rate, frame rate etc. And you'd better make you're your player supports TrueHD audio and DTS MA audio, since the audio will remain what they are after ripping.
